Arnt they wonderful.. :3
I never saw altums there. I saw Rio Negro Altums but those are leopoldi AFAIK. He gets nice ones nonetheless and theyre reasonably priced.

If one manages to get in there right when they go on sale and get a good selection its a good source.

Sorry I haven't posted here for a long time; it's about time I started again!

I bought six angelfish (not altum) a few months ago from Finatics. They were healthy and beautiful and have more than doubled in size since I got them! I would definitely recommend FInatics for anyone looking for cichlids. Mike is extremely knowledgeable and his fish are very healthy. He also has good deals on crypts every so often and can provide great advice when choosing plants.

Edit: I should add that the angelfish were much cheaper at Finatics than at any other store I investigated.

Mike sells crypts??? I always thought he did FW fish-only. Maybe plants on the side as you said. I would say he knows a lot about fish, particularly african cichlids, but I haven't talked to him about plants yet. Other FW community fish he seems okay with, obviously more knowledgeable about Africans though.

He had an entire garbage bin full of large crypts when I was there (to sell, not to throw out). I don't think he has plants very often, though. His store is almost exclusively dedicated to cichlids. There are a few tanks with other community fish, but the selection of cichlids is amazing.

Mike has a member name on PNA, I'll dig it up for you. He is a fantastic guy and has some stunning fish for sure.
